Help if your parent/carer has a problem
If you are affected by your parents' or carers' drug or alcohol use, we work with children and young people both on a one-to-one basis and within the family group.
We provide advice and education on substance misuse and the harm it causes. We provide a safe space for you to explore your own thoughts and feelings around your parents and carers.
We want to make sure that you are safe and we will support your whole family to help them address their issues and move forward.
For further information, or to make an appointment, call 01942 487578.
